The objective of the project is to catalyze the discovery of new bioactive marine natural products around the study of micromycetes.
The originality of this Bretagne and Pays de la Loire interregional project is to associate 9 platforms involved in several axes of the Biogenouest network (Functional exploration, Proteomics, Structural and metabolomic analysis, Bioinformatics) around a source of biomolecules innovative: marine micromycetes.
The geographic dispersion of the teams, companies and socio-economic actors working in the field of marine micromycetes can be an obstacle to their biotechnological development. The CatalyMar project responds to a need to revitalize this sector. The coordinator of the federative project maintains links between the different players, follows the progress of scientific results and monitors the PAAs in the field of marine biotechnologies allowing to feed, develop and open this network beyond from the Great West region.
